Local Residents Happy to Be Back On Stage in ‘The Diary of Anne Frank’
Some Robbinsdale and Plymouth residents are happy to return to the state in SOAR Regional Arts’ production of “The Diary of Anne Frank.”
“It feels so good to be back. You know theater is a community. Both as an audience member and as a performer. I think we’ve all really missed it. We’ve all been waiting for the green light to know that there are ways to get back involved safely,” said Jenny Ramirez of Robbinsdale.
Ramirez plays Mrs. Van Daam in the production.
“We are so relieved to be back on stage. We really feel that what we do and what we provide for the community is essential. So it was really hard for us to be away from that for awhile,” said Ellen Beaudry, co-founder of SOAR.
SOAR chose “The Diary of Anne Frank” because of its small cast size of 10 people. Cast members have also noticed the play’s themes are applicable to events today.
“We often talk about how many of the lines that the characters have parallels to what is going on in our life today,” said Steve Ramirez of Robbinsdale, who plays Mr. Van Daam in the production.
“The Diary of Anne Frank” runs this Friday, Saturday and Sunday at St. Michael Middle School West.
Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $16 for adults and $14 for seniors and children. Tickets can be purchased online at the SOAR Regional Arts website.
